I guess my point would be that I ordered on 10/27/08 and I am priority 1 at my dealer who got a consensus for this week of production. I hate to sound like a broken record...I guess I'm just getting nervous not seeing blue on any VIN's...If it's going to be a rare color all the more better for me I guess...but maybe I just need to not log onto here until friday..sorry guys just seems too wierd for me..i dunno

No biggy dude. Almost understandable. But, you have to accept facts. There was a problem with CGM...so Chevy put a constraint on it. Don't you think Chevy would do the same for Blue if there was a problem? It doesn't compute.

I don't know if it's just the color or what? I placed my order for a IOM SS2 back in 10/20/08 and I am still on 1100 and only 3 cars were made on that color and only auto. I don't know what is going on but it seems the earlier you placed the order the longer you have to wait. I did not chance my order or color. I am #2 at the dealer and priority 1. Go figure. Maybe they have something against the blues or IOM's

Well...Now I'm all kinds of pissed off and confused!..I just called the Chevy 800 number and gave them my order number and asked for a status on my order..after about a half an hour and a call back from the guy( because I was on hold so long)....He tells me that my TPW is April 13th!!...The Sales Manager at my dealership told me this week!...I just called the dealership and he is off today but I will be up there getting some answers tomorrow. I'm not sure what to think at this point!

Sorry to hear the bad news, but here is some great news from the OP. This is a guy that works at the Oshawa plant.

I noticed on the VIN spread sheet today that there was an IBM 2LT built, so I don't think there is a problem with the blues.

AGAIN...........you could not order a blue SS until after early DECEMBER, 1 1/2 months after preordering started, old threads say from Thanksgiving thru Dec. 4 were the dates. So there were 45 to 50 days of SS orders before the first Blue SS was ordered, don't know why someone who ordered Oct. 13 and changed to Blue wouldn't have been built. How many SS's were ordered prior to December? Have we seen Blue V-6's built, yes but we haven't seen their VIN's either. My SS was ordered Dec. 31, but changed Feb. 21 to drop polished wheels, I will be waiting long after all of you have yours.

All we need is an answer from someone in the know...I can deal with it..just tell us why...if it's a delay...just say it. it's that simple....and by delay..I DON"T mean constraint. I know Blue is NOT a constraint on the SS. (or is it)

This makes absolutely NO sense at all..I have no Idea what you are trying to say...are you trying to say you can not change your color to blue before your order gets pulled?? Whaaaa? My order was accepted and Pulled for a build THIS week... A BLUE ABM SS..it was accepted for production...Now GM customer service says it will not be built until April 13th week...Riddle me that one Batman!

If I changed my ABM 2LT to an SS, do you think I'd be pushed back further in line? lol
